WELL LOOKY LOOKY: Bill O’Reilly Reportedly Fired from Fox News Amid Sexual Harrasment Allegations

The Murdoch family, which runs Fox News, has reportedly decided to fire Bill O’Reilly from the network.

O’Reilly is Fox’s biggest ratings draw, but he has been on “vacation” since reports broke that Fox News and O’Reilly paid around $13 million to settle sexual harassment and verbal abuse accusations made by five women since 2002. Since the initial reports, Fox News has been plagued by advertisers yanking money from spots airing during O’Reilly’s show, The O’Reilly Factor.

Fox executives are reportedly debating whether O’Reilly should be allowed to give a good-bye address to his audience. According to a new poll by Politico/Morning Consult, just 23 percent of people who watch O’Reilly’s show think it should be canceled.

The Murdochs removed former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes last summer in the wake of sexual harassment allegations.
